commitment has never been stronger. >>> obama care can't succeed without them, and that's why president obama is hosting a youth summit this afternoon. the administration says healthcare.gov is vastly improved, now working more than 90% of the time and able to support at least 800,000 users per day. on monday, as we've been reporting, the site had a million visitors. but even with these improvements, what are the chances the administration reaches its goal of seven million americans enrolled by the end of march? take a look at the math. in october, 27,000 americans signed up on the federal exchange. in the month of november, 100,000 people. even if, let's say, they quadruple november's numbers in december, that's another 400,000 enrollments. so under that scenario, less than a million people will have enrolled in the first three months, leaving only three months left to get to the goal of seven million. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist and msnbc policy annual list ezra klein from whom we steal these kinds of numbers. ezra, good morning. >> good morning. >> what are the chances r
the average just in late october. but the obama administration admitted this morning on "the daily rundown" it's still not running ads or doing any marketing trying to drive traffic to the site. >> we wanted to see how these first few days go. if we're getting a lot of traffic, then we don't feel the need to drive it. our view is we are not doing that because we don't need to do that in terms of driving traffic. we're going to monitor. it's not about confidence in the site, it's about whether or not you actually need to drive traffic. >> and there are also still concerns about the back end of the site. that's the part that sends information to insurance companies. republicans on the sunday show still aren't satisfied. >> the first impression here was terrible. and i think it's going to be an unfolding disaster for the president. >> i still think the foundations of this plan have some of the same kinds of problems that the rollout has had, but they're fundamental, very hard to overcome and unfortunately as people enroll, i think there's going to be a lot of negative surprises as to what they're
the administration's handling of the rollout. one attack called the landrieu barack obama's rubber stamp. how big a problem is the affordable care act going to be for these democrats. >> well, if the election were this year it would be a big problem but luckily it's next year. this year it's a political problem. next year it's a consume issue. it's like the medicaid part d rollout. when it rolled out, it was a huge problem and then a year later people were using the benefits, using the products and they liked it. this time next year this isn't going to be perhaps a winning issue for democrats but it's not going to be the silver bullet that republicans think it is. >> danny, let's not pretend that attack ads are anything new, but it does seem that the quantity of them, how early they start before an election has changed dramatically. part of it is super pacs, part of it is just the general mood that's out there in washington. so is this a problem not just obviously for the people who are trying to run for office to win re-election, but for getting people to actually run? >> well, it's that and the
if people are talking about you? >> it's not obama care so the administration does this and he's looking very press deshlg. he's meeting with the premiere of china, big deal for him. >> this is, i think, one of the most talked about stories that i've heard in a long time. so jeff bezos goes on 60 minutes and he has these drones and they'll drop packages with a new pair of shoes on the front doorstep and what's your social media reaction? >> it's very negative. three to one against. >> why? >> we did what we call symantec analysis. the word drone is not a positive connotation for two reasons. number one, the militaristic uses of the drone and number two, it feels very big brother and it feels a little forced, the night before cyber monday and the night before he's out talking about this and a lot of people felt like, well, he's pushing this, but we're not going to see it and it was a little creepy for some people. >> well, did you see this picture on twitter? i think it's been retweeted thousands of times. it's a mock attempted delivery slip. they checked off, drone resurgence and against
morning, i'm chris jansing. there's a major new push to focus positive attention on obama care, and it starts today. the kickoff is at the white house this afternoon. we'll hear from the president today, but the plan is to have a democrat or someone from the administration do something every single day until the december 23rd deadline. and just announced, this thursday the president will sit down with chris matthews at american university. the interview will air right here on msnbc's "hardball" at 7:00 p.m. eastern. again, that's thursday, december 5th. >>> and it appears to be the right time for a new pr campaign, considering that the website is doing better. a senior administration official says 750,000 people visited the site yesterday, and enrollment numbers obtained by nbc news show more than 100,000 signed up in november. let me bring in our company, molly ball, national political reporter for the atlantic, ryan grim is the huffington post washington bureau chief and an msnbc contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> so the huffington post had the sc
